Welcome Jackie Stratton
Hi! My identify is Jackie Stratton. Ten years back I moved to Maine and most people I knew were being residing in cabins with no running water. 4 of us couples transformed a woodshed into a sauna, fired it up every Sunday for a few yrs, took our weekly baths, rolled in the snow then potlucked. We finally stopped the weekly tradition when ample of the partners had broken up and daily life got too shook up.
Now, I operate Cedar Grove Sauna in a small city in Maine. In 2020, I figured out how to be a carpenter and designed a community sauna on our 200-calendar year aged rural farm. In late 2021 I completed my horse trailer cellular sauna conversion. The mobile sauna goes to a different spot on the Atlantic ocean every 7 days, supplying visitors an chance to swim in salt water yr-spherical. Even in a Maine winter season!
Emphasizing mother nature, community, wellness, and entire body positivity, neighborhood Mainers have been savoring introducing thermic bathing to their winter season wellness program listed here at the farm sauna or on the ocean in the cellular sauna. Men and women adore it so a great deal that I’m developing one more sauna at the farm this summer months.
I have experienced authentic stay Finnish individuals take pleasure in my sauna and inform me it felt like an authentic countryside or lakehouse sauna. But aside from looking at each and every reserve I could locate on sauna, viewing a single way too many so-so youtube movies, and inquiring much too quite a few queries when I meet up with a Finnish human being, do I, Jackie Stratton, self-determining saunapreneur, even know what a traditional Finnish sauna is like?
The US street vacation
I just finished a US street trip in which I toured very hot springs, public bath houses and saunas. During this vacation, I uncovered a large amount and obtained schooled in Russian banya by a team of Ukranian women.
